McCain adds South Carolina GOP leader to political action committee
From CNN Ticker Producer Alex Mooney

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sen. John McCain added another South Carolina lawmaker to his Straight Talk America political action committee Wednesday, as the Arizona senator continues to lock down support for a potential presidential bid in the influential Palmetto State.

State Sen. Glen McConnell, who lives in Charleston and serves as the president pro tempore in the Senate, will be a co-chair on the PAC.

"Glenn has been fighting for the conservative cause for many years," McCain said in a statement released by the PAC. "No one is more effective or more courageous."

McCain has acknowledged he is considering another run for the White House
